A heavyweight undercard fight ahead of the Tyson Fury-Deontay Wilder trilogy bout ended in bizarre scenes following a series of low blows.
Poland’s Adam Kownacki struck Finland’s Robert Helenius below the belt on three occasions, the first time knocking his opponent to his knees but only receiving a warning.

The second time resulted in a point deduction and, after landing a third low blow during the sixth round, the referee stepped in and disqualified Kownacki, handing ‘The Nordic Nightmare’ his second win over Kownacki from as many fights.
The decision brought to close an enthralling clash described by ESPN reporter Mike Coppinger on Twitter as a “helluva… heavyweight scrap”.
“This is a Nordic nightmare for Adam Kownacki,” wrote DiBella Entertainment reporter Dan Canobbio on Twitter.
